Smart Satellites Get a Closer Look - Along with semi-autonomous advancements in the RapidFire system, NASA is testing new integration techniques with the EO-1 spacecraft and its cutting edge ALI instrument. It works like this: when MODIS spots an area on the ground that may indicate fire, advanced software puts out an alert. That message essentially instructs ALI to point itself towards the zone of interest and get a close-up...

|E01 - Hyperion Imaging Spectrometer - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab|
Beyond the Pale--Hyperion Imaging Spectrometer - It's not so much that the Hyperion instrument will be able to see the Earth more 'close up' or have a higher spatial resolution than previous instruments. Yet Hyperion's goals are nothing less than ambitious. The instrument is designed to gather highly complex data from a given region on the Earth by viewing the surface in terms of 220 distinct colors or 'bands' of light...
